Core plug-in versions should follow BASE versions
|Reported by:||Nicklas Nordborg||Owned by:||Nicklas Nordborg|
The version number of the core plug-ins as reported by the Plugin.getAbout().getVersion() are hard-coded into each plug-in. This means that many of the core plug-ins are reporting different version numbers. Some are even on version 1.0 (eg. lowess). Currently, there is no policy when a version number should be increased. I am not sure it has ever happened, even though some plug-ins have changed a lot (eg. lowess).
My suggestion is that the core plug-in versions should be the same as the main BASE version.
